DCHI, LLC(Classic Home Improvements, Inc.)
A stress-free work environment, teamwork and customer trust are keys to success at Classic Home Improvements on Ellicott Street. The business has been named in the top half of the top 500 in a national trade magazine, Qualified Remodeler, for six consecutive years.
''There is no magic in the home improvement business, just good quality workmanship. If you do a good job and go back and fix anything that is wrong, customers come back,'' according to owner Eric Biscaro.
A native of Bliss, Biscaro began his career in the home siding business with a part-time job during weekends and vacations before he graduated from Letchworth High School. He continued to work for other contractors until he was 20 years old. In 1977, he started his own business with a hammer, a chalk line and two employees. Before the first house was completed, he had three other home improvement jobs lined up.
''Most people do some type of home improvement or remodeling within five years of acquiring the home. They may redesign a roof, add a patio or change siding. whatever it is, they will do something after they have looked at a home for five years,'' said Biscaro.
''I love to move around. The longest it takes to do a job is two weeks. That way nobody gets bored. Give us a siding, roofing, new window or patio job, we get in and get it done and get out and it looks great.''
